Aside from the game, Tuesday was a special night for many groups who were honored at the Women's College World Series.
It was the annual Military Appreciation Night at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium, serving as special recognition for those who are actively serving, as well as past veterans, with several in the crowd.
That also included a round of applause for Tennessee co-head coach Ralph Weekly, who is a Vietnam veteran.
Public service workers were also recognized for their efforts. Among them were first responders during the May 20 tornado in Moore.
The little league softball team of Sydney Angle, the 9-year-old girl who was among the children killed by the tornado at Plaza Towers Elementary, was also brought onto the field before the game for a moment of recognition.
ANOTHER OKLAHOMA CHAMP RECOGNIZED
While OU was playing Tennessee for the WCWS championship, the NCAA Division II softball champions were recognized on the field.
Of course, it wasn't a long drive to get all the players from Central Oklahoma over to ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.
UCO won the D-II softball title with a 5-2 victory over Kutztown University on May 27 in Salem, Va. The Bronchos were 9-0 in the NCAA Tournament and finished 51-11 overall.
